So said they guy "we" rescued this weekend along with his son down in Florida. More on this incredible story later. :thumb:
NBC had a segment of this Coast Guard rescue on their TV news show last night.

Thank you Coast Guard! :thumb:
Does the Coast Guard ever bill for people doing stupid things?

Every winter the Air National guard is called to rescue hikers who get stranded in a storm while hiking in sneakers - I know they have been known to send bills.
I don't know that they are necessarily paid but they are sent.
Sometimes boaters don't watch their fuel levels, and usually a commercial towing company is used.
